The burning question: what in the world is cashmere extract? It's one of the central ingredients in your CURLS Cashmere+Caviar Collection. Read on for the deets. WHAT IS CASHMERE EXTRACT? Essentially, it’s a protein. Proteins are derived from the horns, hair, hooves or skin of animals and vegetables. Cashmere comes from animal hair, usually goat hair, to be specific. You usually see it listed as hydrolyzed keratin or wool. HOW DOES IT HELP YOUR HAIR? Cashmere extract is known to be helpful in filling in cracks in the hair shaft, meaning it’s very nourishing to dry, damaged curls. It can also prevent moisture loss, add shine and banish frizz. WHY IS IT SPECIAL FOR NATURAL HAIR? Curly hair can be prone to dryness and tangles, and cashmere extract is known for its strengthening and silkening effects on textured hair.
